You are officially in the final week of your second trimester! Time sure flies when you’re having fun, eh?
Baby is starting to recognize voices. The most important voice being yours! Studies have shown babies’ heart rates slow when they hear their mother’s voice. A sign that baby is relaxed. Same goes for your partner, so keep on chatting with baby.
Don’t know what to say? Try narrating your life. “Now I’m walking over to the fridge to get another fistful of cheese for you baby.” Baby doesn’t care about the content, baby just wants to know you are there.
If you are having a boy, baby’s testicles are migrating down into the scrotum, a trip they will take 2-3 months. They must take the scenic route!
